Episode Summary

EDIT
Excitable Boy
AIRED:
Miranda, the torch singer, is assaulted and raped by a wolf, and initially refuses to divulge any details of her attack. Kanin tries to persuade her to help him bring the guilty party to justice, but she explains only people "on the hill" get justice in Wolf Lake. Willard releases Ruby from her house arrest, hoping she'll marry Tyler Creed, and tells her he can't protect her and Kanin if she returns to him. Meanwhile, Sophia is accepted to the University of Florence, and Luke is upset that she may be going away. After she experiences the beginnings of a Wolfen transformation, Sophia decides to forgo the trip, much to Sheriff Donner's disappointment. Tyler Creed is suspected of raping Miranda, but he informs Willard Cates that Cates' brother Bruce, the manager of the Rendezvous Lodge, is responsible. According to Wolfen law, rape is an offense punishable by death. Bruce, fearing for his life, turns himself in to Kanin, but Willard visits him in jail and clandestinely poisons him. Willard takes a wolfen "run," to clear his head, but is caught in a trap and shot by an unknown assailant.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Sophia faints, you see both of the plates she is carrying shatter on the floor, but when Sherman helps her up, she picks up an unbroken plate.

    • QUOTES (9)

      • Sophia: (about her fainting and wolfy vision) Isn't there supposed to be some kind of warning before everything goes "Star Wars"?
        Sherman: (chuckles) That is the warning.

      • Matt: Hey what are you doing up?
        Sophia: I know, two in the morning, I should be asleep.
        Matt: This is what the fourth night?
        Sophia: I can't sleep. I toss and turn all anxious. I wanna jump out of my skin.
        Matt: Maybe you should go see Doctor Chapman.
        Sophia: Yeah. He'll just tell me it's a phase, and make me a balloon animal.
        Matt: (laughs)
        Sophia: I'm not a kid anymore. When's he going to realize that I'm a disturbed teenager.

      • Miranda: Good night, Power Rangers, it's been a slice.

      • Miranda: (to John) You're new in town. So let me clear a few things up. Things like justice, opportunity, equal rights, those are all for people on The Hill. Down here Justice is deaf, blind, has a flappy ass and walks around on one leg.

      • Miranda: (leaving hospital room, runs into a nurse with medications) Are these mine? (reads label) Pain killers. (looks at other bottle) What's this?
        Nurse: Anti Inflammatory.
        Miranda: Keep it. (tosses bottle back at the woman) Boring.

      • Sherman: (helping Sophia up after she fainted and dropped the plates she was carrying) I wouldn't expect a tip from table four.

      • Miranda: That's the great thing about my reputation. It can't get any worse.

      • Sophia: Don't you ever fantasize about anything beyond Wolf Lake?
        Luke: Why should I? I'm never going to get to do any of it. I can't leave this town, you know that.

      • Bruce: (talking to Willard Cates while he's in jail) Besides, I'm gonna live longer than you, cancer boy.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Miranda: Good night, Power Rangers, it's been a slice.
        - She is equating the wolves in the town with the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" TV show. Power Rangers get extra strength and abilities when they go into Ranger-mode, like the wolves shifting into wolf form.

      • Sophia gets accepted to the University of Florence
        - The University of Florence (Università degli Studi di Firenze) was founded in 1321 and has approximately 60,000 students, making it one of the oldest and largest universities in Europe.

      • Bruce sings a few lines from the song "New York, New York" which was the theme song for the Martin Scorsese movie by the same title. The song was popularized later by Frank Sinatra.
